|meds without insurance?
||[Jan. 3rd, 2010|07:41 pm]
For those of you without health insurance, how do you obtain the medications that you need?
Situation: I would like to go back to school and get a bachelor's degree, but to get the one I want, I have to go full-time. So I'll have to step down to supporting myself via part-time income instead of the full-time income I have now.
I've been working toward this for a while, and I've gotten myself to the point that once I pay off my car, I can afford to do it...if I have a way of still being able to access my meds. Right now, I have kick-ass health insurance (see above under working full-time). What can I do when I have no prescription coverage, or very little coverage?
Not taking the meds is not an option in my case: I function fine with them, but without them I can't even hold a job at all, never mind go to school.
But I don't see how I'm going to manage the last two years in the major I need without going full-time, and I'm honest enough to admit that I don't have what it takes to both work and attend school full time. I don't have a spouse or children so I don't qualify for certain need-based programs.
Suggestions are appreciated!
